capturing beauty in sticky fingers, & happy wrinkled toes

Taking a morning bath with Henry, the Yellow Giraffe.
Why a morning bath, you ask?
Well. That's a funny story...

Let's just say Jax got syrup & peanut butter in some pretty crazy places!
(including a bit in his left ear.)

(Note to self: have you (me) really not learned not to leave the room
(even if it is only for a 62 seconds)
while a monkey, named Jax, is eating french toast?
Come on!
Get it together mama.)

Gosh. This boy's smile makes all the sticky messes just disappear.
I am SO whipped.
I LOVE how he can sometimes be Mr Serious.

I love the Curious George in you, my sweet little boy.
I can just hear all the thinking going on in that cute head!

The want you have to learn how every little thing works.
(Including the bathtub)

I still can't get over how lucky I am to hold this hand,
to give that round belly kisses.

You make the simple every day things
pretty extraordinary.

Even when things get sticky,
& even if our house permanently smell like maple syrup!

Your Daddy & Mommy are just smitten with you.
You are our sunshine, Jaxy boy!!

Linking up with Sweet Shot Tuesday,
 for the 1st time Capturing Beauty !

MG Atwood said...

Great shots! Next time, just strip him down, throw him in an empty tub and then when breakfast is over, scrub a dub dub!

Courtney B said...
